A native of Italy, Gianni has pursued cheesemaking across the world. He moved to Wisconsin in 1979, landed a job at BelGioioso Cheese and has continued to develop his craft ever since.

Randy Krahenbuhl
Randy Krahenbuhl
For Randy, it all started with his dad. They made traditional Swiss cheese, side-by-side, at the family’s Green County, Wisconsin, cheese plant in 1970, and Randy has carried that passion throughout his career. Randy is a Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® certified in Swiss, gouda and fontina, and points to the program as a real differentiator for the entire state.

Jeff Allen
Jeff Allen
Imagine working a summer job at just 14 years of age and being introduced to a lifelong passion. That’s just what happened to Jeff when he worked in the repack room at a local cheese factory. Eventually, his passion led him to the position of plant manager at BelGioioso Cheese, where he conducts his craft as a Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker of both blue and gorgonzola.

Darrell Manning
Darrell Manning
For the folks at BelGioioso, provolone is close to heart––it was one of the first cheeses they ever made. And that’s exactly why Darrell wanted to master it. His Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® certification only bolsters his renowned career of more than 30 years
Master Cheesemaker Certified in: Provolone
Steve Bierhals
Steve Bierhals
By the time he was 20, Steve was working at the local cheese plant and exploring the many facets of the industry. In December 2016, Steve took the ultimate leadership role by completing the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program and earning his Masters in parmesan (grana), a cheese he first learned to make from his mentor, Master Cheesemaker Gianni Toffolon.
Master Cheesemaker Certified in: Parmesan
Josh Krause
Josh Krause
Thanks to his family’s practice, Josh learned early on that cheesemaking was his passion. But it was a job at BelGioioso in college that really drove home that sentiment. Josh has kept the fire going throughout his nearly 20-year career, and remained fascinated by the art of cheesemaking. He’s certified for parmesan and romano cheese through the Wisconsin Master Cheesemaker® program.
